VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM Clean Cities Building Partnerships to Reduce Petroleum Use in Transportation The U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities initiative advances the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum consumption in trans- portation. Clean Cities accomplishes this work through the activities of nearly 100 local coalitions. These coalitions provide resources and technical assis- A hybrid electric bus powered by natural gas in downtown Denver.

These stakeholders gain access to a wide array of resources, including networking come together to share information and resources, educate the opportunities with fleets and industry partners, technical training public, help craft public policy, and collaborate on transportation and workshops, individualized technical assistance, information projects that reduce petroleum use. Nationwide, more than 10,400 resources, funding opportunities, assistance with media outreach, stakeholders participate in Clean Cities coalitions. and public recognition for efforts to reduce petroleum use. Clean Cities coalitions provide a forum for stakeholders in the public and private sectors to share information and resources, educate the public, help craft public policy, and collaborate on projects that reduce petroleum use.

In 2011, Clean Cities awarded $8.5 million to help communities in 24 states and the District of Columbia prepare for the arrival of PEVs and plan for charging infrastructure. Clean Cities coalitions across the country are working with automakers, utilities, state and local governments, charging equipment manufactur- ers, and other stakeholders to accelerate the adoption of PEVs and maximize their potential to reduce emissions and petroleum use.
